Who is the story about? Sella the Seal
Description Sella the seal spends her summer searching for new and exciting places to go swimming.
Who else is in the story? Violetta the firefly, Thaddeus the puppy, Olivia the owl, and Gus the guppy.
Where are they? On a beautiful, cloudless day in June, Sella meets her friends Violetta, Thaddeus, Olivia and Gus at the seashore.
What are they doing? The friends are all excited about summer and want to find new places to swim and play. Sella likes the ocean, but knows that Violetta can't swim, that Thaddeus hasn't learned how to swim yet, that Olivia is afraid of the water, and that Gus prefers to swim in his own fishbowl.
Why are they doing that? All of the friends know that school is out for the summer and want to make sure to have lots of fun together until school starts again.
What happens to everyone? Violetta learns that she doesn't have to swim to have fun with her friends, Thaddeus learns how to swim, Olivia learns that although she doesn't like to swim, she doesn't have to be afraid of the water, Gus learns that swimming in places other than his fishbowl can be loads of fun, and Sella learns that she has the most fun when everyone is having fun!
What's your favorite part of the story? The part when everyone learns how to have fun and be safe in (or simply near) the water, and then when they learn that having fun together is better than only some having fun while others don't.
What would you build out of LEGO® DUPLO® blocks to bring your story to life? We would build the animals, a pond or a river or the ocean, and lots of toys for the animals to play with in the water!
